Former flop amazes NUFC fans as he fires side towards the Champions League quarter-finals

When Facundo Ferreyra arrived on loan in August 2014, he signed as a slightly unknown quantity, however no one could have envisaged him flopping so hard that he’d fail to play a single minute in a black and white shirt.

Almost 4 years on and the Argentinian striker is scoring goals in the Champions League, with him giving Shakhtar Dontesk a 2-1 league to take to Roma thanks to his goal in the first leg of their last 16 tie last night.

There’s been some odd deals in the Ashley era and this one is right up there. The Ukrainian league isn’t exactly a brilliant gauge of how good the lad is, but with 20 goals in his last 23 games and an involvement in 5 goals from his last 7 Champions League games, he’s clearly more useful these days than he was at Newcastle United.
